    • 1. Job Market Requirements in Supply Chain Management Dr. Zinovy Radovilsky California State University, East Bay APICS MISSION PEAK CHAPTER PDM, October 3, 2007
    • 2. Presentation Overview
      • Motivation
      • Jobs in Supply Chain Management
      • What Knowledge/Contents Are Required by SCM Jobs?
      • What Skills Are Required by SCM Jobs?
      • Do Existing Academic Programs Address the Job Market Needs?
      • Conclusions and Future Research
    • 3.
      • Supply chain management (SCM) has taken a new paradigm shift in the 21st century
        • Cope with constant changes including new approaches in developing supply chain strategies
        • Emphasis on partnership and outsourcing
        • Increased environmental and ethical concerns in managing supply chains
      • All this presents the contrasting differences of the traditional and new supply chain management environments
      Motivation
    • 4. Education in SCM
      • Education in SCM is based on a variety of educational approaches
        • SCM course in a general business program
        • Specialized electives in SCM, or SCM concentrations (options)
        • Complete SCM majors
      • The field of SCM education has attracted extensive attention and reflection
      • Various criticisms have been raised on the nature, relevance and appropriateness of existing SCM curriculum
    • 5.
      • SCM curriculum may be inconsistent with the practical market needs
      • Few studies try to validate whether the academic programs match with that of practitioners view
        • Bridging gap through survey – subjective responses
      • Existing approaches do not
        • Address the question of what specific skills (organizational, analytical, decision making, software, etc.) are required in the real-world SCM jobs
      SCM Education - Observations
    • 6. Proposed Approach
      • Development of SCM curriculum—both content-based and skill-based curriculum categories
        • Content-based : Supply Chain Planning, Materials Management, Quality, Purchasing, etc.
        • Skill-based : Team Work, Software, Organizational, etc.
      • Traditional approach
        • Identify SCM curriculum content from analysis of academic programs
      • We suggest
        • SCM curriculum should reflect contents and skills from SCM job market requirements
    • 7. Questions to Answer
      • Identify the main content- and skill-based categories
      • Find the priority of these content & skill based categories according to their frequencies
      • How these priorities change in relation to SCM job attributes?
      • Relationships between SCM content-based and skill-based categories
      • Implications on SCM curriculum
    • 8. Data Collection
      • We have evaluated 200+ job postings from various sources in 2006-2007
        • Job-related websites of SCM professional organizations like APICS, ISM, CSCMP
        • Job listings from major corporations like Toyota, IBM, Dell, Federated Logistics, Bank of America, Wal-Mart, Safeway, and some others
        • Internet-based SCM job listings such as monster.com and dice.com
      • 58% of jobs in manufacturing, and 42% in service companies
      • Monitored some other attributes of posted jobs
        • Required degree (like bachelor, master, etc), location of jobs in various states, and required/desirable professional industry certificates (CPIM, CSCP, CPM, PMP, etc.).
    • 9. Data Collections (Continued)
      • Entry Level jobs with up to 4 years of experience
        • Junior Planner/Scheduler, Supply Chain Analyst, Junior Buyer/Planner, Logistics Analyst, etc.
      • Middle Level jobs with 5 to 7 years of experience
        • Inventory/Materials Manager, Supply Chain Supervisor, Master Scheduler, Logistics/Warehouse manager, etc.
      • Upper Level jobs with 8 and above years of experience
        • Director of Logistics, Director of Supply Management, Director of Procurement, Senior Supply Chain Analyst, Senior Purchasing Manager,, etc.

      • Identified relationships between content-based and skill-based categories
      • Direct use in developing the SCM coursework in terms of pedagogy and delivery methods
      • Designing undergraduate and master’s SCM courses within general business education, or creating new concentrations/options or majors in SCM
